Hi there, Christine here. Today I am going to show you how I make my Christmas Cards that I send in the post to friends and family. I love to get everything organised and then I can sit down and put them all together like a production line. I was able to put these ones together while watching the Rugby on TV!
This is one of the finished cards- the next few photos show you the process I went through to make my cards.
The next step was to get my bits & pieces ready. The cream card was for the card, the black for the base and I punched a border along the bottom of it. The Kraft I cut into strips and made tags out of them to stamp my Greeting on using a Kaisercraft stamp. The green I stamped with a Kaisercraft Holly stamp and then cut them out - (Since then I have bought a Holly Punch!) The SS Flash cards I cut out of the sheet of 12x12 paper. I also cut up strips of Paper from 2 pieces of the 6x6 paper pad.
This photo shows the steps I did to put it all together! Starting at the top left - I attached the flash card to the black card.
Top right - I attached a strip of PP with staples to the bottom of the black card.
Bottom left - Attached the black card base to the cream card and added the kraft tag.
Bottom right - Attached the holly leaves and added 3 red rhinestones as the berries. Then added a piece of peelcraft lines to the top corner and a star to the tag. - All done!
Here are some of the finished cards. They were all a bit different as there were 12 different flash cards, 2 different papers for the strips and I used 2 stamp greetings. It didn't take very long to put together the 24 cards. It was great to use the flash cards instead of the same bit of patterned paper as it kept me interested and not bored while doing them all.
Hope you have enjoyed seeing my 'production' line of Christmas cards. I have kept them flat as these will be posted.
